    Paranormal Disturbance at Lincoln Dog Track
    Bad Medicine warns Wampanoag Chief

    Wampanoag Chief Wilfred Eagle Heart Greene, was shocked to hear of increased paranormal activity in and around the racetrack in Lincoln and the Monastery in Cumberland.

    This could be very bad medicine. the chief exclaimed. Medicine men have told me to expect this, but, well, you know, who wants to seriously talk about ghosts today?

    The report was publicly released yesterday by the Valley Rangers Paranormal Investigators, a research group based in Cranston who has investigated paranormal activity throughout RI, CT and MA, but has concentrated on the paranormal energy in and around the Monastery in Cumberland and the Dog Track in Lincoln for over ten years. They have nothing to do with the Wampanoag tribe and were not known to the tribe until the report was released.

    The report summarizes that Wampanoag Ancestors may be responsible for this increasingly active paranormal activity in and around their ancient lands.

    Yes there was a very old Wampanoag settlement there, the Chief said. There was also a Wampanoag fort that pre-dated the American Revolution. One day family members discovered the fort was just gone as contractors had torn it down without permission to make way for the racetrack around 1954.

    That land is sacred Wampanoag land dating back to antiquity. Even when they invented the unsigned deed that descendents of the Colonists filed 50 years after the date of the alleged transaction, they dared not take the land around what is now the racetrack. It was specifically held for the Wampanoags because back then everyone knew it was sacred ground to us.

    As to the apparitions, Chief Greene responded, I suppose its possible, but Id have to see it for myself. He then went on, Actually there may be a reason for this. You have to understand that during King Philip's War in 1675, EVERY Indian Tribe on the Eastern Seaboard and Canada was either neutral or fought for and under the great Wampanoag Chief Metacom (King Philip) son of Massasoit. Every tribe . . . EXCEPT the Mohegans . . . who fought against their fellow Native Americans under Chief Uncas.

    Uncas and his people executed many Native Americans, and while history shows that King Philips hiding place was betrayed by an Indian in the service of Captain Church, it is most likely that that Indian was also Mohegan.

    You can see why our ancestral spirits may be a little miffed even at the mention of the Mohegans! Chief Greene said with a wry smile. That land is Wampanoag ancestral land. It is our history, and it is our future. It must not be soiled by Mohegans or any other tribe. If spirits ARE at work there, the worst thing to do would be to violate Native American Indian law and take part in putting another Indian tribe on Wampanoag land. That would be very bad medicine.

    Lincoln Park suspends racing in wake of sickness

    Thirty of 80 greyhounds set to race Saturday withdrew because of illness, namely kennel cough, and the park has instituted a quarantine.

    01:00 AM EDT on Tuesday, April 19, 2005

    By JOHN HILL
    Journal Staff Writer

    LINCOLN -- Dog racing at Lincoln Greyhound Park has been suspended since Saturday because of an outbreak of kennel cough among the dogs there, a park spokesman said yesterday.

    Park officials decided to call off racing after 30 of 80 dogs set to race Saturday night withdrew because of illness, park spokesman Michael Trainor said. He would not predict when racing would resume, saying the dogs' health would be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. The track's other gambling activities are unaffected.

    No dogs have died or are in danger of dying, Trainor said. He compared kennel cough to a cold in humans. The illness is harmless to humans, he said.

    The park is under a dog quarantine, Trainor said. All current dogs must stay until judged healthy and no new ones are being allowed in.

    This year's strain has been working its way through dog tracks nationwide, Trainor said. Outbreaks have already been reported in Arkansas, Texas, and Florida. It is usually spread when a dog from one part of the country comes to another track and brings the germ with him or her.

    "It's highly contagious and airborne," Trainor said. "It hits the younger dogs worst."

    Susan Netboy, director of the Greyhound Protection League, a national organization based in California, commended Lincoln Greyhound Park for its response to the outbreak.

    "I'm glad that they put a quarantine in place," she said. "I wish all the dog tracks and dog owners would."

    Trainor said, historically, Lincoln's cases of kennel cough seem to occur between March and May of each year. He said this year's strain seemed to be less severe than the 2003 version, which forced the track to shut down dog racing for a month.

    Netboy said the current strain appeared to have started in Florida at the end of 2004. As to whether it will be turn out to be less of a problem than 2003, she said she wanted to see more data before making the conclusion.

    The reason they call it "kennel cough" and not "dog cough" is because it only occurs in dogs being kenneled for some time, as in cooped up in small spaces immediate to other dogs cooped up in small spaces for a period of time.

    There is some blame to be put on the housing facilities for these dogs.

    WARL (1320AM) TO INTERVIEW GHOSTHUNTER
    Brian Bishop to interview Wimbley Track Investigator

    (Providence) Talk show host Brian Bishop will interview Valley Rangers Paranormal Investigator spokesman Daniel J. Bidondi, Jr. on WARL 1320am, today, April 26th at 6pm.

    Bishop, known for discussing thought provoking ideas will discuss the increasingly active paranormal activity at Wimbley owned
    Lincoln Greyhound Park in and the Monastery in Cumberland, Rhode Island.

    Bishops interest in the ongoing paranormal story came about today amid reports that a man was escorted from Lincoln Park by Lincoln Police and Wimbley Security around 11pm last night for speaking to an Indian that security and track officials determined was not there.

    Valley Rangers has been investigating these two well-known RI sites for over ten years and has noted a marked increase in paranormal activity since the Mohegan Indian Casino organization calling itself BLB began negotiating a purchase of Lincoln Greyhound Park from Wimbley. Both of these sites are ancient ancestral villages of the Seaconke Wampanoag. These are the same Wampanoags who met the Pilgrims in 1620 and depicted meeting Roger Williams on the Great Seal of Providence still used today.

    Valley Rangers Paranormal Investigators is a Rhode Island chartered, non-profit organization since 1999.

    RI GHOSTBUSTERS GRANT INTERVIEW
    Paranormal Politics say critics

    (Providence) - Rule free radio took on new meaning for Brian Bishop of 1320WARL radio as he
    was first to interview the modern day Ghostbusters investigating the paranormal phenomena at
    Lincoln Park and the Cumberland Monastery.

    Unlike the dorky "Ghostbuster" movie image, these guys are big and come packing plenty of muscle.

    Squeezed into the small glass "fishbowl" radio studio right on Dorrance Street near the courthouse,
    their breathing alone caused the temperature to rise inside the glass studio.

    "We have no fear of investigating any psychic or paranormal phenomena no matter how
    dangerous" declared Jason Bidondi, lead photographer and an investigator for the group.

    Clearly they were not concerned about being laughed at either. When Brian Bishop, the lanky
    ringmaster of "Rule Free Radio" called their comments "Paranormal Politics", Dan Bidondi,
    weighing in at 250lbs of hardened muscle from amateur wrestling sounded off, "We don't care
    about politics. We are tracking the paranormal!"

    "That was land historically belonging to the Wampanoag." Dan Bidondi went on. "We don't
    care about the politics of the situation, just about reporting what we have observed and
    trying to explain why it is happening. It was Wampanoag land, and now Mohegans are trying
    to take it over. We located Chief Greene of the Wampanoag and asked him what he knew, and
    learned about the "Bad Medicine" of the Mohegans years ago. Now they are trying to buy the
    racetrack disguised as the company BLB.

    The surge in paranormal activity at Lincoln Park and the Monastery have prompted other
    investigative groups to take an interest as well. This interest comes from someone at the
    Atlantic Paranormal Society to Shelley King who is from Cumberland to even a brief email
    dialogue with "The Silver Willow" in Rehoboth, and many others from out of the area.

    After the show, the group showed some of the "spririt photos" they had taken and some of the
    high-tech equipment they use to do temperature readings, electronic voice print readings,
    audio readings, etc..

    "It's clear these guys are not in this for money." Brian Bishop observed. "These guys are
    serious and investigating in earnest."

    Geez! :eek2:

    What is going on is that the dogs need more space and disinfected quarters.

    Amazing how that can be turned into a media event and press and exposure for the track.

    I had trouble figure out what it was about. Is it the investigators just wanting attention? Is it the track going in for cheap publicity? Is it someone who is anti-BLB attempting to stir up controversy to void any negotiations for purchase? Is it BLB themselves behind it just trying to use cheap tactics to devalue the property a little?

    Who knows. I did find one part humorous though, where they mentioned the guy who was escorted off the property for talking to an indian that was not there. Who can say how truthful it is, but it is a pretty funny thought.

    Well, as something of a paranormal investigator myself (something you didn't know about Mary) with some tribal experience (something else you didn't know about Mary) I got to say, they sure are coy about describing the paranormal activity.

    Other than a guy talking to Indians that aren't there.

    This is ringing Mary's BS Bell bigtime. For one thing, the "Chief" with his cornball "medicine" talk is somewhat offensive and not typical of a lot of Native etiquette. If anything, this will bring people out to the dogtrack.

    Paranormal investigators who are also wrestlers? WTF? What's to wrestle? There's no need for muscle at all.

    Lemme tell ya, digital equipment (cameras, motion detectors, emf readers, sound recording devices) have gotten so cheap that everybody who can read a dial is running around photographing reflections of dust particles and diligently recording EMF fluctutions of nearby appliances going on and off and thinking they've got ghosts.

    Yeah, I kind of cracked up when I read this one:

    Dan Bidondi, weighing in at 250lbs of hardened muscle from amateur wrestling sounded off, "We don't care about politics. We are tracking the paranormal!"


    I kept picturing some WWF type guy getting all heated up, and it just cracks me up. About the time I stopped laughing I came to this part and had to start up all over again:

    "It's clear these guys are not in this for money." Brian Bishop observed. "These guys are serious and investigating in earnest."

    Right. ;)

    PARANORMAL YIELDS ARCHAEOLOGICAL FIND
    Ghosts expose Historic Wampanoag Settlement

    The Valley Rangers Paranormal Investigators finally showed the press why they believe at least one spirit lives in the cross at the Monastery in Cumberland. With onlookers present, Dan Bidondi showed evidence of a moving electrical magnetic field in the cedar timber cross that has been there since before the Monastery fire in 1950. Electricians consulted could not explain the readings, and photos shown by the Investigators showed what they claimed was a spiritual entity around the cross.

    As further proof, Rangers offered to guide onlookers on the mile long trek to the archaelogical site they claimed to have found while following an entity, an orb of light to the remains of an ancient Seaconke Wampanoag encampment.

    Over rough terrain the observers, including REUTERS photographer Jessica Rinaldi, (the first to photograph the site) and WHJJ News Reporter Kevin Willette followed their guides, tripping in the mosquito infested darkness to witness remains of an encampment that may predate colonial contact.

    Once there, a square of rocks with larger rocks at four points for a fire within a circle of stones with a predominant red one for a seat which geologists identified as a Wamsutta stone (named after the son of the great Wampanoag Chief Massasoit. Seaconke Wampanoags were the Indians who met the Pilgrims and helped them during the first hard winters.

    The increased paranormal activity at Lincoln Dog Track and the Monastery have caused several paranormal investigative groups including Paraex Research Foundation (Paraex.org), Volusia Investigations into the Paranormal, and some associates of The Atlantic Paranormal Association to monitor the current situation.
